Good show, reddy, I like that 1967-03-18 a lot too.

Have you tried the 1967-06-18 Monterey Pop VLB?
Fantastic version. Also, it'as available on film/video download on youtube, though the version (google it) is longer and sounds better than the youtube truncated outtake.

Also, have you seen PETULIA, the 1967 movie? (Release date 1968) - great footage of the Grateful Dead playing Viola Lee Blues. Big Brother rocks out Roadblock at the Fairmount Hotel, too.

Then, check out the 1966-05-19 VLB herein.

Plus the VLB rehearsals. circa 1966 - amazing behind-the-scenes audio, also herein. (LMA).

Further comments on the O'Keefe Center Show are posted at - search for it, enlarge the handbill or poster - read the story - even the ushers were waving goodbye on the last day, sad to see them go or maybe just one hand clapping?
